Also make sure you know the weather conditions your plants need to be in, to sustain a long life. Wherever you are buying your plants from, check with the staff to make sure your plants can survive through a horrible heat wave, or a frigid, cold winter.
To better protect your plants you can grow them in a controlled environment such as the oGrow OG6868-PE Greenhouse which will give your plants protection from insects, animals, and inclement weather.
Perennials are known for spreading. What once started as a small package of seeds quickly turns into a garden full of flowers.
If you have a garden of full of them, and you really like the way they look, and you want to plant them in another spot in your yard, you can do that without buying more seeds.
You can simply divide the ones you already have growing, and transfer them to another garden you would like to grow them in.
In order to divide them you need to dig under the ground, deep enough to get the roots. Using either a garden fork or a spade, pick up a part of the plant from the root up.
Separate the roots so that each part of the plant has a root coming out of it. Immediately take the plant to the new spot and plant it in the new flowerbed.
Do this repeatedly for however many plants you want to transfer.
These plants are really a lovely addition to add to any garden. They are the backbone to any great garden. Plant them all throughout your gardens for a great look all year long.
